Like NC said, normalizing will only raise the highest peak to a value you set. Suppose there is a pop, or some other loud noise causing a temporary peak in the recording, that will be the peak. You could go through the entire recording and reduce those ugly peaks to the same level as the rest of the recording, then normalize the track, or use a compressor to "level" the track, but be careful with compression, it can do some odd things if you get carried away with it.
